As government and the insurance industry continue their quest to control health care, your clinical autonomy is in jeopardy. Now more than ever, you need to fight and advocate to keep medical decisions in your well-trained hands.

Fortunately, you do not have to wage the fight alone. Successful legislative advocacy depends upon an integrated approach, consisting of lobbying, grassroots activity and political action through the California Medical Association's (CMA) California Medical Association Political Action Committee (CALPAC). 

Operated by physicians for physicians, CALPAC supports hundreds of candidates for state and federal office who share CMA's philosophy and vision of the future of health care and medical practice.

Support CALPAC

Strengthen your political voice and protect the practice of medicine.
